Standard Solar Expands Footprint in Rhode Island with Acquisition of 4.9 MW Community Solar Project from Freepoint Solar; Moves State Closer to 100 Percent Renewable Goal

Jan 10, 2023

January 10, 2023 08:45 AM Eastern Standard Time ROCKVILLE, Md.--( BUSINESS WIRE )-- Standard Solar , a recognized leader in the development, funding, ownership and operation of commercial and community solar assets, continues to expand its community solar portfolio in Rhode Island with the acquisition of a 4.9 megawatt (MW) project from Freepoint Solar LLC. The Woodville ground-mounted community solar project in Richmond, RI, was developed by Freepoint Solar. Standard Solar will be the project’s long-term owner and operator. The array will provide customers with locally produced clean energy and help meet the state’s goal of transitioning to 100 percent renewable energy by 2030, as mandated in 2020. The community solar project, part of Rhode Island’s Renewable Energy Growth Program, will allow customers in the state to benefit from clean energy savings by offsetting their electricity bills with solar energy. This community solar project comes at a time of rising electricity prices across the country, with Rhode Island having some of the highest rates in the nation. “Providing much-needed relief from rising energy costs to customers is critical to furthering the clean energy economy, and collaborating with partners like Freepoint Solar brings us a step closer to that goal,” said Harry Benson, Director of Business Development, Standard Solar. “This project, which will serve hundreds in the community, plays a significant part in transitioning Rhode Island into a 100 percent renewable energy state and will help reach its goal of being the first state in the nation to do this by 2030.” “Freepoint Solar is pleased to have teamed with Standard Solar on the Woodville Project and continues to look for opportunities in New England to support the region’s transition toward a renewable future,” said Peter Ford, Managing Director of Freepoint Solar. In addition to accelerating the state’s clean energy supply, the project will generate new long-term investment, savings and job growth opportunities across the economy. The array is expected to produce 7,700-megawatt hours of clean energy annually, equivalent to offsetting the carbon emissions of 3,655,423 pounds of coal or the annual electricity use by 648 homes.
